Never heard of the film? No problem, I'll lay it out for you. It's a mash-up of Tarzan, Conan the Barbarian, and Shaw Bros. Kung Fu films. The Sword and the Claw is cheap and features some of the wortst dubbing I've seen but that only adds to its unique appeal. Defenders of Turksploitation films swear, it's without question, filled with energy and excitement.
AGFA [American Genre Film Archive] presents a brand new 4K transfer of the Turkish psychotronic masterpiece! Releasing January 23rd, 2018. PRE-ORDER HERE!
They took his money. They took his family. And now, they’ve taken his hands. But they can never take his revenge! Exploding from the same hallucinogenic netherworld as TURKISH STAR WARS, THE SWORD AND THE CLAW stars Turkish genre legend Cüneyt Arkin in his most iconic role. It’s CONAN THE BARBARIAN meets The Three Stooges meets DOLEMITE with more lo-fi bloodshed, pop-art visuals, and bizarro dubbing than the boundaries of reality can handle.
